Dirty Business – a preview

My first novel “Dirty Business” is almost complete and should hit the streets in early 2013. Join Willow, a thirty year old lesbian Private Investigator, as she bumbles her way through a life on the darker side of town. Tough, sarcastic and no-holes-barred, “Dirty Business” is the first in the Willow series.

Check out the preview of the first two chapters below and feel free to comment. I apologise for the lack of ability to format the text correctly on the following extract.

ONE

They emerged from the blackness that’s the dim corners and low hide-aways of the alley. They’re like bats exiting their cave. I’m taken by surprise. I was distracted. Not my usual self. The first indication of their presence I get is a sense of movement followed by a blow to the side of my head. It’s forceful enough to bring me to my knees but not enough to leave my mind blank. And that’s his first mistake. His second is his bravado. Continue reading Dirty Business – a preview

ANAGAAP Theme song complete!

Chris Juergensen wrote and recorded the theme song for A Nun a Gun and a Prostitute this month in Tokyo.

The song came together surprisingly easy after I gave Chris a brief on what I was looking for. The track was laid down in a studio in Tokyo this month and Chris said that it had been recorded start to finish with no breaks. Pretty amazing for such a long piece!

The link provided below will take you to his website and also allow you to hear the song. It’s called “Nostalgia’s Fate” and Chris has captured the whole vibe of the film amazingly. Go to his site, check out his music and buy his albums. I have!

A Nun a Gun and a Prostitute Edit

Well the edit has been going along incredibly. I’m really pleased at where I am at with the whole style of the film. I think getting that right is half the battle.

I had one of the lead actors Sam Tripodi (Lester) around yesterday for a little sneak peek and to run through some editing ideas. The editing table is a complex one and having another head to bang ideas with makes a massive difference to creativity.

I will continue with updates as the edit goes on.

My new book is now available for purchase.

My new book titled “Like the Dog I Am” has now been published. You can find the book for purchase in both eBook and print versions. Here’s a short description and review written by Teri Louise Kelly;

“When he told me he needed a fountain pen, I dismissed it as normal, what normal passes for anyhow in this world we inhabit. And then, later, I thought, hold on, he’s going to stick that nib into his vein and write a book out of his own blood. A few moments of panic and then normality grabbed me again, bit me hard on the cheek. I could see him doing it too, hunched over his desk, the one with the cartridges on it, madly scribbling verse in his own métier. Later, compelled by gnawing cold and dead bang fusion induced by god’s nectar, I called. He mumbled something, late-night obscenities -caffeine-inspired rage of the insomniac. I let it go at that, all was well in our small page of the global book. He rang me later, as the moon bowed out and the big yellow ball gripped folk’s throats again. Here, it’s finished. He told me coldly. How could he write a poetry book in . . . I cut myself short, Hank had done it once out of fear, fear of losing the artery of creation. I read it, went to a bar and ordered tequila. I was after the lime and salt, something to mask the sting his words had left in my mouth. He wrote this book for you because you are the axis. I don’t know who you are, but I know who he is, he’s a dog, a dog that roams the night looking for tomorrow. When he told me he needed a fountain pen, I knew why, I just didn’t know he’d slaughter language with it.”

Collectors Edition Poster

So I thought that in celebration of the release of issue #1 of Finger Magazine I would create a collectors edition poster featuring one of the images I shot for the fashion spread in the middle of the mag. The theme was recycled and retro clothing for the shoot so I figured an older style of poster might look good.

Tell me what you think and if you would like a copy of the poster let me know as I will be selling a limited number of prints. I plan on doing a five foot high one of these on canvas for the reception wall at the office.
